This is a poignant and contemporary love story that delves into concepts of compatibility, attraction, social norms in romantic relationships, inter-religious relationships and the stigma faced by such couples.
This youthful romantic drama opens at a Keralite Christian wedding, a young man in the audience watches mournfully as the woman of his dreams walks down the aisle, to marry another man.
His reminiscences then take us on flashback to a young wannabe filmmaker, Kartik (Simbu), whose new tenants are a Keralite family. With their daughter Jessie (Trisha) living in the same house with him, he ends up falling instantly in love with her, head-over-heels and against all reason. After a few minor spurns, Kartik chases Jessie to her hometown and they gradually begin a relationship.
Trouble brews when her family finds out, leading to fist-cuffs, and Jessie's father fixing her marriage with a boy within the community. The couple continue to meet, but as his film-making career starts to take off, there is new friction in their relationship and a drastic step from Jessie... Will Kartik succeed in marrying the girl of his dreams? Will he find success in his chosen profession?
